Ambiance was dark and settling, allowing for a romantic setting. Menu is broad, yet applicable. Staff was courteous, knowledgeable, and prompt. Food was decent, yet thoughtful. All in all, a decent night out. Price was $58 for two on a shared four course. Portions were small for the price, but this is glorified fondu. Wife and I enjoyed but did... More

Zander was our server for my father's birthday and Father's Day dinner. He made suggestions for each part of our 4 course meal and every suggestion was PERFECT. He was very attentive and made pleasant and genuine conversation. To compliment his exceptional service...the food was perfect. Go for The Mojo broth and the creme brûlée white chocolate for dessert.

My husband and I have not been here since our fifth wedding anniversary. Having kids puts a damper on your ability to have date nights, so when our friend offered to babysit on my husband's birthday, we booked a reservation at the Melting Pot. The Melting Pot is more upscale than your average casual restaurant; no need to dress-up (but... More

My guests from Guadalajara, Mx. requested a birthday surprise dinner for one in our party. They had enjoyed a meal there over 2 years ago and could hardly wait to return. We arrived about 6 pm. and tried several different items. from cheeses then veggies & bread then the meats. Our server was so knowledgeable and patient . We turned... More

From the moment we sat down it took four hours before we left. The server seemed to think this was normal, unapologetic. Appetizers and dessert was great. Atmosphere was great. Unique experience. But the prices are high for what you truly get.

We went to this place to celebrate our 28th Wedding Anniversary. We had not eaten here before. When I made the reservation, I asked for a table that was romantic. They gave us a table that was perfect for us. We both went with the four course dinner and the wine flights. Our first course was Quattro formaggio. This was... More

A Fondue restaurant is not common so we try to visit this particular establishment each time we visit San Antonio. A three course fondue meal is quite unusual. We enjoyed every course from cheese to chocolate. The layout of the restaurant is mainly booths so there is a distinct feeling of intimacy. The service was prompt and the server knowledgeable....

Came here for dinner Christmas Eve with family, their first visit and my second to this location. I wish it was closer as I love it, but I don't think my family was overly thrilled with it. Probably better just for appetizers and dessert or a date night, but still good either way. I wouldn't personally bring young children here... More

The food is good, but the entertainment is better. I loved doing everything with the fondue. The pork was excellent it was seasons to the T.
